Today's edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry was full of Black star power.  I got a chance to talk to the ladies of "Girls Trip," which opens in theaters nationwide this weekend. Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall dish about their roles while the film's producer---Will Packer---weighs in on why this particular film is so important. Mayor Kasim Reed also talked about his desire for Atlanta to make this film #1 at the box office.

The Synergy Awards is one of AAFCA’s signature events and celebrates inroads made by film and TV professionals in the Southeast. It also provides an opportunity for creative professionals in and around the area to connect and collaborate with their peers across the industry.
